Do not open CP through you email! It can be phishing
I just now got a PM/verbal 'NSFW' email from some disgusting idiot. It appeared here, on ClassicParker... I immediately deleted it, so I have no details to share... Maybe Angie can intervene to see what's going on....
Here is what came to my email. IF YOU SEE THIS, DO NOT OPEN IT.....

I NEVER open thru an email,
I purchased an item from a member, so I looked at my messages - in the CP site, and saw a message from a scammer…

Maybe time to limit my time on this site if it’s been corrupted

Just got a spam 2 minutes ago. Different than yours but just a variation on the same theme.
I won't be back for a while :((

BTW - I did not open CP through email - it showed up as someone sending me a post.

Mine also came through here; not originally via email....

Wow, everyone sure is sensitive to spam. Don’t we all get hundreds of this crap per day? Just delete it or ignore it. It’s not CP fault. It’s a website guys, that’s it. Words on a screen! Ok, now back to the boats. Taking the 17 to the keys today. Great conditions out there at least in lauderdale right now.

I just had a conversation started with me from a username of nadred111. I happen to have my preferences setup so I get sent an email from CP when this occurs. This has definitely originated from CP, not from some random spammer on the internet.

Who cares! Back to Parker discussions please, ty
I care. I think it is very useful to know when someone starts a conversation with you from a forum that you consider friendly(CP) that it is actually someone trying to deceive you for who knows what reason via your personal email.

You can turn off that feature if you feel a threat lurking. I too received the similar email, and it took me a whole 3 seconds to figure out where it came from and who it was and what they wanted. Obviously a "scammer" became a Classic Parker member and has now sent private messages to legitimate members for gain. Hopefully the CP administration will act on our complaints, and this thread, and delete that illegitimate member. This is kinda like border security....be safe all.

I have just put all new registrations on manual approval. And I've banned all I could that have recently registered, that I found when looking at new members.
They are mostly from Russia. And I've been blocking some IP blocks.
Thanks for reporting them and starting this thread.
